The restaurant is large and airy. It is well situated for walk to a number of sites in downtown Seattle. Reservations are a must. The place was hopping when we went for breakfast. Food was fresh, unique combinations and very tasty. Service was spot on.

The food is amazing, the service great, atmosphere is electric. Go hungry as the portions are large. Make a reservation to avoid the long wait. We had the chorizo scramble, a special of the day. They accommodated the vegans with tofu in lieu of eggs....More
